I tried to get booked on the Carnival Inspiration out of New Orleans since I will be there on another matter prior to its sailing on March 11th. The ship is sold out. I called Carnival and they said that I could pay $250 to be put on standby should somenting open. Is this a good thing to do? Any advise would be appreciated.
I'm assuming the $250 is a refundable deposit, and in the event they can't get U on the ship, they'll return the money.
Double check to make sure that's the case. If so, and u still want to go on the cruise, U've got nothing to loose.
